Christmas is a time for giving, sharing and celebrating… But the holiday season can also be a difficult time of year for many. With the generous support and donations from our local community, Youturn is committed to supporting and spreading a little joy each Christmas.

“Happiness does not result from what we GET, but what we GIVE.”

For many vulnerable young people and families experiencing hardship, a Christmas dinner simply isn’t a possibility and the giving and receiving of gifts is an unaffordable luxury.

If you are in a position to give and relieve the pressure off a family or young person doing it tough, there are a number of ways you can support.

GIVE A LITTLE MORE OFTEN

Consider becoming a regular giver as there is a need all year round, Every act counts – no matter how small. (eg $5 or $10 each pay day, to help sustain and support throughout the year (not just at Christmas)

“Little by Little, a Little becomes a lot”
GIFT A MEMORY

The Entertainment Experience package will be individually tailored specifically to each young person or family and includes:

  • Dining experience at a local restaurant or
  • A day out at a local water or theme park,
  • A Christmas tree,
  • A gift for each family member from a local supplier under the tree

(Each gift to a family or young person would be a luxury they cannot normally afford and at the same time we would be supporting a local tourism or hospitality business who are also doing it tough.)
